    Gout is a disorder that results from the build-up of uric acid in the tissues or a joint-most often the joint of the big toe.
    Since without seeing the problem i cannot tell you what you can do. But you can contact foot specialist / podiatrist and based on the problem he will give you treatments. If you have not tried Ibuprofen medicine then you can take it for pain relief.

    In UK gout is treated by GPs (doctors) not Podiatrists, although deflective padding or chairside appliances may help in some cases.

    Diagnosis is via a blood test.

    GPs may prescribe NSAIDs, Allopurinol, Colchicine, or steroids to alleviate the condition.
